My 2.8 Prescott was running 42-44C at idle, 10-12C higher than MB
temps, with stock HSF, 50-60C under load. I brought the temps way down
by taking out the 80mm side fan and putting in an 80mm to 120mm
adapter and 120mm Sunon fan, 108cfm, blowing in. The adapter brings
the fan a couple of inches from the CPU heatsink. Right now the MB is
29C, CPU 32C. I'm not a gamer, but I play Arasan chess, it used to
bring the temps way up to 55-60C, but since I put in the 120MM fan it
hasn't been over 48C while playing chess. The Sunon is loud, I'm
getting a rheostat for it so I can turn down the RPM when I don't need
the extra cooling.

I went out and bought a cool master aero 4 lite and it works better then the
stock cooler and it comes with a dial for speed that I put in the 3 1/2 slot
in the front of my case and my cpu runs 10 degrees C. cooler under load. I
only paid $19 Canadian for it. Worth ever penny I paid.
